Wine of the Month

Because even though it's not a wine, it's hot and thirsty out there, and who doesn't love the refreshing taste of a Radler?

Real grapefruit juice gives this deliciously refreshing Radler (mixed beer drink) its amber natural cloudiness and pleasant tangy taste. The refreshingly fruity taste makes Stiegl-Radler Grapefruit a wonderful thirst quencher.

Available right here at NourishMe.
